Discuss Similar characteristics between nonliving and living creatures.
By definition, a living thing is a self-sustainable organic system that is susceptible to evolution. This definition covers a wide range of organisms, from bacteria and fungi to humans, flowers and other plants and animals. Non-living things are organic system that cannot fall under the criteria of the living things. They share the following characteristics; In both cases, since those things (living or nonliving) exist, they occupy some space and have a certain mass. Both living and nonliving things can be moved around or transported, by exerting some force on them, which requires energy, which in turn requires either food that is processed through some metabolic mechanisms, or fuel in the case of machines, which is further processed in order to obtain energy.
